Westmount Park - Seed Trees (Conifers)

Umbrella Pine (Pinus pinea).

From Wikipedia:

“Pinus pinea has been cultivated extensively for at least 6,000 years for its edible pine nuts, which have been trade items since early historic times.

The tree has been cultivated throughout the Mediterranean region for so long that it has naturalized, and is often considered native beyond its natural range.”
